  • Blog Post: Reasons to be cheerful

    I may be the anti-geek but even I am excited to see Win7 RTM made available on MSDN to BizSpark member companies. Check out the latest BizSpark news on Twitter . I finally joined the 21st century and signed up to Twitter myself a few weeks ago. Fascinating. It was down for a few hours today though (hit...
  • Blog Post: Quelle Surprise!

    For me, the last few weeks have been delivered quite a few unexpected or unwelcome events; and a few nice surprises. The weather for one.

  • Blog Post: New Year optimism

    As most of the country goes back to work tomorrow after the festive break, I'm embarking on the first of what will likely be many business trips.
